Glory Seed Devotionals, 2016: Year of the Blessing
God, Yeah my hope’s in Him…
“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was formless and empty, and darkness covered the deep waters. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters. Then God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. And God saw that the light was good. Then he separated the light from the darkness. God called the light “day” and the darkness “night.” And evening passed and morning came, marking the first day.” (Genesis 1:1–5, NLT)
I discovered something new this morning; it’s been there forever (as far as I am concerned) but until this morning it’s only been part of the creation story but now it’s much more, it’s a part of my Jesus story. Once was a time when light and darkness occupied the same space, “Then God separated the light from the darkness.” Once was a time when light and darkness existed in me together, “Then God separated the light from the darkness.”
“Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty. This I declare about the Lord: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and I trust him.” (Psalm 91:1–2, NLT) Once was a time when the light of life and the dark shadow of pulmonary fibrosis occupied the same space in me, “Then God separated the light from the darkness and the dark shadow of pulmonary fibrosis became overshadowed by God’s shadow and since has become light.” It is true pulmonary fibrosis still continues to plague me but because it is now overshadowed by the Holy Spirit it will NOT defeat me nor will it dampen my spirit and will to go on! The dark has become light!
Please take note that Psalms 91 begins with “Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest…” it is not addressed to just to me; it is not just my Psalms but YOURS as well! Please experience the “dark shadows” that once occupied the same space in you now overshadowed by God’s light and believe they will NOT defeat you nor will they dampen your spirit and will to go on! The dark has become light!
Believe in presence of the GOD and in the strength of his GRACE!
GRACE and PEACE,
